A co-op is a cooperative effort led by parents, and its success or failure rests squarely on all of our shoulders. There are many ways you can help:
- Teach or co-teach a class
- Assist in a class
- Help by walking around the classes (since we are outdoors we'll need everyone to help watch)
After Co-op ends for the day many of us like to hang around for socializing and fun. We enjoy our lunches together and have a chance to talk, share experiences, and get/give advice while our kids play.
'Deseret has blessed our family for the past decade. We have enjoyed activities from park days to toddlers to camp for my teenagers. So grateful for the friends that my children and I have made through this wonderful community.' - Marissa Sutherland
'We loved our first year of Co-op! There was a wide range of class topics, and my kids loved making friends and learning in a relaxed group setting.' - Jennie Compton
'My teenagers enjoyed the Shakespeare play as well as classes with other teens. I love taking turns teaching small groups of kids or helping out in their classes.' - Leilani Jensen
'I did not know the first thing about homeschooling but I found great support in the Co-op. I met friends who shared in my frustrations, and others who have homeschooled from the very beginning who were supportive and helpful.' - Kaylyn Backus
